LGN2018: een nieuwe weergave van het grondgebruik in Nederland

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


LGN2018 is a grid database presenting the Dutch land use in 2018 at a spatial resolution of 5 m. The database has 48 land use classes, distinguishing the main agricultural crops, forest, water, nature and urban classes. In addition to the increase of the spatial detail (from 25m to 5m spatial resolution), the thematic detail of especially the nature areas has been greatly improved by using multitemporal Sentinel-2 images and the national height model (AHN2/3 database). Furthermore, the production of LGN2018 uses topographical data (BRT/Top10NL - version November 2018), Basic Registration of agricultural Parcels 2018 (BRP2018), Bestand Bodem Gebruik 2015 (BBG2015), Basic Nature Map 2017 (BKN2017), LGN7 and the aerial photos from 2018.LGN2018 production has changed significantly from LGN7 production (including improved spatial resolution, use of other databases, and improved definition / derivation of LGN classes). From now on, a new version is released every year that shows the current land use for the respective reference year. This makes it possible to monitor land use changes. LGN is offered in subscription form.
